Peanut Brittle

I gave up on candy making a while back, but this looks like a candy I could make because the recipe is so simple.You could also make this with almonds or even macadamia nuts. Yum! I also think this is a microwave recipe. Be sure to use a pyrex or other microwave safe dish.

Peanut Brittle

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup white Karo

1 cup raw peanuts

1/8 tsp salt

Combine 1st 4 ingredients in an 8 glass cup. Cook on high forĀ  8 min, stir well after 4.

Add 1/2 tsp butter & 1 tsp vanilla & blend well. Then cook on high for 1 min.

Peanuts will be lightly brown and sugar very hot.

Add 1 tsp baking soda and stir until light and foamy. Pour mixture on lightly greased cooky sheet. When cool break into small pieces & store in container.

If roasted salted peanuts are used delete salt & add peanuts after first 4 min of cooking.
